Red Carpet Inspiration: 2014 Oscars

Just because you don’t have a red carpet event coming up doesn’t mean you can’t get inspired by Oscars fashion. Many of the trends at the Academy Awards are easy to translate into real life! From metallics to white tuxedo jackets, here are my top picks of the night—plus ways you can get inspired by the looks at affordable prices!

From silver to gold to mixed metals, metallics were by far the most popular trend of the night. The great part about this trend is it carries from winter into summer with a simple swap of accessories!

Black & White

Black and white is huge for spring. So I wasn’t surprised to see so much of it on the red carpet. This is one of the easiest trends to do. Toughen up a white dress with black heels and purse or bring life to a LBD with white earrings and a white clutch!

Embellished details are another huge trend for spring. While we don’t all necessarily have many occasions to wear heavily embellished dresses you can try a bedazzled clutch or cardigan to make sure you shine!

White Tuxedo Jacket

I absolutely love how Pharrel’s wife translated the most popular menswear trend of the night! A white tuxedo jacket, or even a blazer, is a great staple to get you through the upcoming seasons.

Thanks to the Great Gatsby, art deco inspired designs are more popular than ever! They’re the perfect special occasion dress. Or, use a deco-inspired jacket to dress up your jeans!
